Bow Saw - Bahco North America #10-24-51 24" Ergo Grip
The bow saw is a necessary tool on any farm or homestead. When I was trimming a few maple branches the other day with my pruning saw, boy did I wish I had one of these. It cuts almost as fast as a chain saw.
There is no better saw than the Bahco Ergo Grip Bow Saw. Formerly Sandvik, the Bahco brand is synonymous with quality. In fact, in 1996, Bahco introduced (they also hold the patent) Superior handsaws, a new and revolutionary tooth geometry - Xt - that saws faster than other handsaws, and has a coating of the blade that reduces friction considerably. I especially like the knuckle protector and the snap on blade protector that come with this one. Blades are replaceable so you don't have to deal with sharpening as you do with a chain saw.
Yes, this Bahco saw is twice the money of the Fiskar's saw but if you only want to buy your tools once, this is still a bargain at $15.96. Believe me, the other day, I'd have paid $35 for one on the spot.
